The wife knew, as did many people, but it was, for one thing, a vee, not a triad, and for another, it was one of those "I'll look the other way and tolerate it" examples previously mentioned.

I stand corrected. It was all very 'discrète'. Sounds like they met after his death.

"François Mitterrand est mort depuis deux heures. A son chevet, que viennent de quitter Anne Pingeot et sa fille, arrivent Danielle et ses deux fils. Le moment est pénible. André Rousselet, l’exécuteur testamentaire, se racle la gorge. "Pour les obsèques, comment fait-on avec l’autre famille?" interroge-t-il. La réponse de Danielle fuse. "Elle n’a pas à être là." Les deux fils se regardent. "On a discuté, se souvient Jean-Christophe Mitterrand, et assez vite il a paru évident que tout le monde devait être là." Les deux vies parallèles allaient pouvoir se rejoindre."

Here's the background.

Just finished reading Savage Beauty, a biography of Edna St. Vincent Millay, the first woman to win a Pulitzer for Poetry (her poetry was quite beautiful!). She and her husband, Eugen Boissevain, had an open marriage and both had lovers from the very beginning, acknowledged and often known by the other, and very often close friends with them both. They were also nudists, to a fair degree, along with certain of their friends. Edna definitely engaged in more dalliances and other relationships outside their marriage than Eugen did. She had been quite promiscuous since an early age and was not about to give up her lovers when she got married. She was also bisexual, and an icon to Jazz Age women who were coming into their own and asserting themselves in more ways than before, but especially with owning and exploring their sexuality.

In one of her letters included in the book (I don't recall to whom), she said, "Why should I be faithful just because I am married? Why should I be unfaithful just because I'm married?"

She was born in 1892 and died in 1950.

Apparently, Rachel Ray's husband is quite often seen on dates with other women openly as well as at swinger clubs. He denies it and she just says she won't talk about it.

I believe one recent thread sez we can add Cameron Diaz to the list?

Also (for those who can stand her), Ayn Rand seems to have had multiple men in her love life (which they knew and consented to).

Wikipedia sez that Rachael Ray (redirected from Rachel Ray) is married to John Cusimano.

Mr. Ray, indeed!
